It’s December ?

When it is almost 15 degrees Celsius in Western Pennsylvania just nine days before Christmas, it is hard to stay inside.  I did a little work in the garden today (I even found a few missed potatoes, the garden keeps on giving) and finished up by enjoying a truly great beer, Pennsylvania Brewing’s St. Nicholas Bock:

This just one luscious beer.  It smells of sweet malt and dark bread.  The taste is smooth and sweet, with rich malt flavor and just a slight hint of toast.  It finishes with just a touch of alcohol warmth that is just so mellow.  Much like a great English Bitter, this beer can be enjoyed with hardly a passing thought; but taking a moment to contemplate its subtleties and depths of flavor make it so much better.  Yum.
